Prevent text from changing cell height

Is there a way to prevent text in a cell from changing its height? The cell has a background image so I want to keep its height static. When the window is resized, the cell also resizes causing the text to fill more of the cell. At a certain point, the text overfills the cell causing the height to increase. What I want it to do instead is prevent the cell from collapsing past that point. Thanks.

Hi,

Try this:

<td style="white-space: nowrap">...

That was close but not quite what I was looking for. I still want the text to wrap to the point that it fills the cell. Once it fills the cell, I want it to stop wrapping. Is that possible?

Hmm.. you need to give the width and height of the cell too..

style="overflow:hidden; position: absolute; height:100px; width:50px"

Well, I can't make the width fixed because it is set to 100%. Should I just use a spacer image?
